Electromobility in Germany - statistics & facts

The German government sees electromobility as a driving force in what may become an overall energy transition in the country, namely a fossil fuel exit. Considering that the German automotive industry is one of the most important pillars of the national economy and also a key player on a global level, in an age when industries are expected to find climate- and environmentally friendly solutions for production and use, widespread access to electric vehicles could be both the dawning of a new, greener era and a massive revenue source.

In short, ideally electric cars should lead to reduced emissions, sustainable energy efficiency and more flexible mobility solutions for consumers. Vehicles are plugged into a charging station and charged from the existing electricity grid. Stations can be either privately or publicly available. Electric cars are powered by rechargeable batteries. The types of electric cars available on the German market are hybrid, mild hybrid, battery electric and plug-in hybrid, and Volkswagen is the best-selling electric car brand in the country. Tesla is the leading electric car manufacturer in the world.

The German government is keen to promote electromobility through various measures, which include expanding the charging station infrastructure in the country and enabling public procurement for public institutions wishing to buy electric vehicles. Electric vehicles include not just passenger cars, but also public transport such as buses. Implementing, or rather, integrating electric mobility on a national level brings with it a list of necessary fundamental changes. These changes essentially mean the cooperation of the electric power and automotive industries, with a wide-reaching overhaul for both. Electricity from renewable energy sources is desirable for charging, to reach sustainability goals. However, to ensure the successful launch of electromobility in Germany, vehicles need to be connected to electricity grids and transport networks, and automobile manufacturers and suppliers face a transition to regularly producing electric car parts and systems.
